After the Turkey, the nap, all that time catching up with friends and family, and dreading the crowds at the mall, it might be time to shop small wherever you are.  Small, independently-owned businesses, like those in Murphys and throughout the foothills and mountains of the Sierra, rely on your support to keep them in business year-round but there’s no time like the holidays to appreciate that personal touch.  So, do a little shopping, sip a little wine, have lunch or dinner, and maybe stroll down to the Park to enjoy watching the kids play.  If you are stuck for gift ideas, there are always gift certificates or tickets to an upcoming event.  Thank you for supporting small business owners everywhere!
